Despite the heat and the excitement of the last few days I have actually done some knitting.
Firstly I have made good progress on the project which cannot be revealed yet. I'm about two thirds of the way.
Secondly, I have manged a few more repeats on my Maltese shawl.
It's not a difficult pattern, it's just that the yarn clings to my hands when it's hot and thus I can only knit when the weather is a little cooler.
And lastly, I have finally cast on for the German Dance Socks. I'm knitting the smaller size first to see how my experiment goes. I'm combining two knitting patterns. The actual pattern detail comes from Charlene Schurch's More Sensational Knitted Socks. I'm using her Vertical Eyelets pattern. I intend using Cat Bordhi's Cedar architecture for the heel and arch.
As usual I am knitting the socks two at a time on 2.5mm circulars and the yarn I'm using is Patonyle. The green Patonyle is some vinatge Patonyle I managed to swap on Ravelry. Why is it so difficult to find solid green sock yarn? Any ideas?
Now tomorrow is our horror weather day. By this evening I will have my project bags at the door ready to go should the need arise. Oh, and I thought I should probably add a pair of clean knickers, just to be on the safe side!
